Geek Tip: Making Yahoo Messenger Look Like Google Talk


If you are like me and have made the switch over to Google Talk because you appreciate its intuitive interface and simplistic design, then this might be a useful tip for you.

To make other chat programs like Yahoo Messenger, look like the ever-so-lovely Google Talk, all you need to do is download a Google Talk skin, and your complex Yahoo messenger days will be over! Just follow these simple steps:

Installing the skin
Click here to download the skin. Extract the contents of the zip and move it to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Shared\Graphics (default installation folder, change it only if you have installed Yahoo Messenger somewhere else)

Activating the skin
Run Yahoo Messenger > Go to Messenger > Change skin…Choose Google Talk from the drop down menu and click OK
